Influenster Spring VoxBox- Part 2 (Secret Outlast Clear Gel)

On Thursday, I shared a review of the first product I tried from my Spring Fever VoxBox from Influenster.

Again, I will be reviewing these products as I give them a try. Here's what's in my box:

Secret Outlast Clear Gel Antiperspirant/Deodorant
NYC New York Color Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm
OSIS Rough Rubber
Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes- Peanut Butter
Today's review is of Secret Outlast Clear Gel Antiperspirant/Deodorant:
It's kind of strange to talk about deodorant, but I'll come right out and say it.  I have always had issues with underarm sweat.  I don't get smelly, but I do get sweaty.  As in, it's-so-hot-on-the-stage-where-I-sing-at-my-church-I-wear-dark-tops-or-tops-that-won't-show-sweat-marks, sweaty.  I've been a Dove user since college.  I like the scents, and most of the time it does the trick.  But I was willing to give something new a try. 
I thought the clear packaging is kind of cool.  I like the ability to see how much product you have left.  I also really enjoy the scent of this.  I'm not sure if mulitple scents were distributed by mine is called "Completely Clean."  This does seem to do a decent job of curbing sweat for me.  Though I can't honestly say that it does better than what I currently use.  I also like that you don't have to use a lot.  Just 2-3 clicks is what the packaging directs.  I usually only need 1-2 clicks.
I wasn't really a fan of the peel off seal under the cap.  That's not a deal breaker or anything, I just found it odd.  It also took an excessive amount of clicks to bring the gel to the top of the package--so much so, that I actually thought it was broken.  As this is a gel, there is a wetness after the product is applied.  I do not like that feeling.  It does dry quickly, however, and because it is clear, you do not get marks on your clothing if applying prior to dressing.  (I hardly ever put on my deodorant and THEN get dressed.  I usually get dressed and then apply.  I did it the other way to test it!)
Overall, I would say that I do like Secret Outlast Clear Gel Antiperspirant/Deodorant.  I may even consider switching brands!
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
These are my opinions only. I am not compensated by Influenster or Secret for my thoughts on this product.

I need a new deodorant... I use a Secret powder stick (I switched from Dove) but I feel like my sweat glands develop immunities to deodorant over time. Weird. Sweat is weird. Maybe I need to try this gel kind for a bit instead!
